The countries to visit this May



Here you’ll find the simple life. With crystal-clear waters that give the Caribbean a run for their money, the beaches are a wonder all on their own. But it’s what lies beyond the stunning coastlines that sparkles brightest of all. Locals with open arms, kind hearts and big characters. They share their traditions so beautifully, connecting us to moments we’ll never forget.


In a land where sipping sangria, tapas grazing and afternoon shut-eye are part of the everyday, this is a country we instantly feel comfortable. Beautiful golden coastlines are contrasted by the country’s vast interior of green mountains, but it’s the warm hospitality and deep-rooted passionate tradition that leaves a mark.


The cuisine. The culture. The architecture. All so very chic, charming and overindulgent. And indulge we do. Archaeological journeys through ancient cities, winding street strolls through enchanting towns and vineyards as far as the eye can see.


An intriguing cultural collision between Europe and Asia, this land’s epic historical tales and magical landscapes have enchanted travellers for years. Capture the essence of its archaeological and cultural heritage, mix with the locals and uncover its fascinating history. From the sands to the spices to the shakshuka, this eye-opening, sense awakening country is a real-time dream.


A captivating Indonesian gem, that shines differently every time you look at it. Dance to the Balinese beat, a place as steeped in natural beauty as it is culture. The deeply embedded spiritualism can be felt at every twist and turn. From its sacred temples, to its magnificent lush rice terraces, and the turquoise waters lapping at the golden sands.


Christened by the Venetians for its striking mountains that cascade into the bay, this tiny nation combines wild hinterland with an alluring coastline. Bursting at the seams with majestic mountains, breath-taking beaches and larger-than-life locals, here lies proof that good things do indeed come in small packages. And it’s yet to be discovered by the masses.


With oceans that shimmer and lands that invite exploration and awe, the jewel of the Dalmatian coastline is a true delight. Rugged cliff-edged landscapes give way to idyllic coves, beautifully preserved traditional architecture, and quaint town charm, yet to be disturbed or overrun by tourism. One to explore before the word spreads.


Travel through the origin of the Amazon, immersing yourself in the sights and sounds of rainforest life. Tree-top ventures, architecture of Inca origin and temple ruins, uncover the hidden corners of the Sacred Valley and explore the Lost City of Machu Picchu. A South American adventure through and through.


Into the wild in every sense of the word. Mystical caves, wildlife encounters, river safaris and rugged jungle camps, this is Borneo. We go off-grid in this tropical wilderness of a place, exploring the dynamic city of Kuching and relishing authentic experiences and delicacies along the way.


Jump aboard for an unforgettable journey through the hushed red sands, mesmerising panoramas, and clear starry skies. The forever deserts captivate all who venture through, and are the perfect jumping off point for an adventure, Indiana Jones style.
